Join us at Cumberland Farms in Halifax on Saturday, June 15 for a family friendly bird walk with Mass Young Birders and the Brookline Bird Club! We will be exploring the ‘Cumbies’ area in search of breeding birds including some infrequent nesters such as the state listed species of concern Eastern Meadowlark. As we walk, we will focus on the different behaviors that we are seeing and what they may indicate at this time of the year. We will, of course, keep an eBird checklist as we go, and we will explore how we can use eBird to keep track of bird behaviors in addition to the species’ we are seeing.

Expect to walk 2 or more miles through flat but possibly overgrown terrain. Sunscreen and insect repellent advisable. Cosponsored with the Massachusetts Young Birders Club, this trip is geared towards young birders under the age of 19 and their families. Directions to meeting location provided upon registration.
